4:02am
running of the bulls, the am spectacle in pamplona, spain. now, this pageant is coming to the united states and surprisingly not everybody is celebrating. we'll tell you about that. >> yes. >> but we begin with the terrifying scene in venice beach, california. the warm summer evening shattered by a driver who plowed right into the crowd. witnesses say it appears the driver did it all deliberately aiming to plow into as many people as possible. abc's brandi hitt is along that iconic boardwalk with the latest. brandi? >> reporter: good morning, bianna. this boardwalk is still an active deadly crime scene. you can see the debris remains in the road behind me as officers now interview a man they call a person of interest in this case. witnesses describe the driver swerving in and out of this crowd trying to hit as many people as possible. a horrific scene overnight. this car speeding down the boardwalk on venice beach and slamming into a group of
4:03am
pedestrians. this morning, eyewitnesses say it was all intentional. >> i saw him. he was looking for blood. that guy's intention was to kill people. >> reporter: they say he fled the scene and hours later turned himself in after running down at least 12 people killing one. >> thousands of people come here to enjoy the beach and walk and bike and walk their dogs. it's horrendous. >> reporter: world famous for its ocean views and fun atmosphere it was packed saturday evening but all came to a screeching halt by this blue dodge avenger captured in these surveillance images by cameras at snapchat's beachfront offices. look here. you can see beachgoers fleeing the path of the oncoming dodge. >> he just drove and took that left turn down the center of the boa boardwalk and bodies were scattered and flying in the air and people were screaming and it was absolute mayhem. >> reporter: watch again on this surveillance video as he swerves
4:04am
seemingly aiming for the tightly packed crowd smashing into gift stands and cathering clothes across the crime scene. >> the boardwalk was packed with people and sped up and looked like purposely was swerving back and forth to run over as many people as he could. >> reporter: eyewitnesses helped the injured until fire crews and paramedics arrived. police are questioning the man in custody and have no the determined a motive. so far no charges have been filed in this case. one of the victims remains in critical condition and two are in serious condition, dan. >> motive is going to be a huge question. brandi hitt, thank you for your reporting and now to another big story, the extraordinary situation playing out for americans in 22 countries right now. sunday is normally a day of business in the muslim world but all of our embassies there are shut down and locked down because of that new al qaeda terror threat and abc's nick schifrin is near the shuttered u.s. embassy in cairo, egypt,
4:05am
nick, good morning to you. >> reporter: hey, good morning, dan. we're right in front of the embassy that is usually buzzing with the start of the workweek but this morning that embassy is closed and all of the streets surrounding it are cordoned off. some embassies look like this. the yemen embassy has local soldiers guarding walls. roads full of checkpoints. pat-downs for all visitors. in cairo it hides behind giant bricks and the new travel alert means americans like 27-year-old ashley brandenburg need to take small precautions. >> you hear there might be a threat so i don't go downtown where most things are isolated. i don't go near the embassy for any reason. >> reporter: the threat started when the u.s. intercepted al qaeda messages about attacking american interests like embassies. one official calls it "a very active plot" led by osama bin laden's personal secretary. in recent days one official said a lot starting blinking red so
4:06am
now look at the man. every embassy that's supposed to be open is shut and right in the middle cairo. americans here keeping their heads down. ? >> i just keep as low a profile as i can. i look like an american and that said i don't walk into harm's way intentionally. avoid large crowds where i can. >> reporter: and it's not clear when this embassy will behind me will re-open but this morning a senior official say in yemen the threat is higher than it's been a long time. dan, bianna, across this region a lot are on high alert. >> nick, our thanks to you. meanwhile, what has been primarily a foreign concern has become a domestic one too. abc news learned homeland official officials are boosting presence at airports and train stations. >> and looking harder at visitors coming in from overseas of let's go to martha raddatz in washington where she's filling in for george on "this week" this morning.
4:07am
martha, we have beefed up security, both here in the u.s. and overseas. should we read into in that american officials think there's a truly imminent threat here or is this really out of an abundance of caution. >> it is out of an abundance of caution but it is also a very real and very serious threat. as nick said it comes out of yemen. yemen is such a dangerous place and if you look at the history of yemen, that's where the underwear, the so-called underwear bomber came from and tried to get that bomb on a plane to go off. that's what they're worried about. that's why the domestic threat and the domestic warnings because they don't know whether this will be on an airplane, an air base, an embassy, a consulate, they don't know so they want to be very cautious about this. what they do know is that they have these intercepts and the terrorists in yemen have said it will be a significant strike, a strategically significant strike
4:08am
and it will be, quote, big. >> and, martha, this unprecedented move on shutting down these embassies, how effective will it be and how vulnerable are americans currently in those countries? >> well, i think they're being closed down, number one, in reaction to benghazi but also when you know the target of these people is a strategically significant place you want to close down your embassies. that's -- there's nothing more strategic in those regions in those areas than the embassies and consulates. some of those embassies are enormous much the embassy in baghdad is absolutely enormous. billions of dollars spent on security there. some aren't. in yemen, it's an older embassy, so there are always, always vulnerabilities even in those big ones because those are closing down too. >> tense situation for americans all over the world this morning. martha, thank you and martha, by the way will have much more on the terror threat later on this week when she speaks with america's highest ranks military
4:09am
officer, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, general martin dempsey. >> but now let's get the morning's other top stories from ron claiborne including breaking news. >> that's right, bianna, and dan, the clock seems to be running out for alex rodriguez of the yankees. good morning, everyone. new reports this morning about rodriguez, a-rod and a possible suspension that could keep him out of the game of baseball for a very long time. just as alex rodriguez insists he will play for the yankees again, sources tell our sister station, espn, that the slugger will be suspended on monday likely through the end of the 2014 season. /total of 214 regular season games. >> baseball wants something significant. they want him off the field at least through next year. they are still thinking very seriously about a lifetime ban. >> reporter: a-rod reportedly tried to approach major league baseball and the yankees to try to reach some kind of compromise on a punishment. but he was rebuffed and that is when the talks broke down with commissioner bud selig's office.
4:10am
selig had been considering a lifetime ban for the 38-year-old third baseman. >> it's the way baseball sees this, if all ten major leaguers they suspended accepted without fighting it, that is a huge victory for them. >> reporter: they played his final game in trenton, new jersey, saturday night. he walked in all four at-bats. he says he will be with the yankees on monday in chicago but right now that doesn't look likely. and with the suspension now, all but certain, the only question whether rodriguez will be able to appeal whatever punishability the league metes out and return to the ball field pending a decision by an arbiter. and we have breaking news overnight, four people injured in a limousine crash in las vegas. police said it happened when a pickup truck crossed the center line of traffic and crashed into the limo. four taken to the hospital. two in critical condition.
4:11am
incalifornia, a building demolition went awry sending shrapnel in a crowd of spectators. it happened on saturday in bakersfield as crews were demolishing an old power plant here. this amateur video shows pieces of debris flying into the crowd. four people were slightly hurt but one man suffered a severe leg injury. >> it shook out and they looked down. i guess his leg was like cut pretty bad. they -- a lot of people said his foot was missing and all torn up. >> 4x6-inch metal shrapnel hit a young lady and hit me in the knee, as well. >> it's earned by pg&e and was decommissioned for decades. no winner last night in the
4:12am
powerball jackpot. it was estimated to be $200 million and now expected to go up to $400 million getting close to the range when i jump in which is $500 million. the numbers drawn last night not that it matter, maybe they help you pick the next round, 21, 24, 36, 42, 45 and the powerball was, bianna -- >> was it 15? >> right. 15. good guess. thanks very much. better luck on wednesday to all of us. >> yeah, so when it gets to 5 you're in. >> half a billion dollars, i'm in. >> enough beer money. >> that raises it from beer money to real money. ron, thanks. well, we'll turn now to two of the world's biggest superstars potentially facing legal action in russia. the official behind the country's controversial anti-gay law now wants to prosecute madonna and lady gaga saying they violated the terms of their visas to enter the country but their outspokenness may be
4:13am
behind the threat and kirit radia has more out of our london bureau. >> reporter: russia is threatening some of america's biggest pop star, lady gaga and madonna did technically violate their visas but this seems to be more about their support for gay rights. ♪ i was born this way >> reporter: no secret lady gaga is an outspoken supporter of gay rights no more than in her hit song "i was born this way." that's landing her in trouble in russia. last year in a concert she spoke out about the city's harsh anti-gay law. >> tonight, this is my house, russia. you can be gay at my house. >> reporter: under that law it's illegal to even speak about homosexuality around minors. lady gaga has been accused of spreading gay propaganda. she's not the only one. madonna also denounced the law during a concert in st. petersburg last year. >> here and all around the world
4:14am
have the same rights. >> reporter: now both of them are facing punishment. technically because their visas didn't allow them to work in russia but the investigation came at the urging of the official who wrote the anti-gay law. >> i think the visa charges are really a shot across the bow for lady gaga, madonna and other international performers who are thinking about taking up the gay rights agenda. >> reporter: that law has been popular in russia, a country where homosexuals are often the target of violence. it's been so popular, in fact, the law has now been adopted nationally. violators including foreigners face fines, deportation, even jail. in the united states, the law has called for a boycott of russian products like vodka and even a boycott of next year's winter olympics in sochi. russia announced it will suspend the law for athletes and fans during the games. >> thank you for spreading the
4:15am
message of "born this way." >> reporter: russ hasn't announced to prosecute the pop stars but if convicted they could face steep fines or even be banned from russia. concert promoters say if they are charged other big acts may cancel plans to perform in russia. so far no response yet from either lady gaga or madonna but knowing them we probably will hear from them soon. dan and bianna. >> sounds entirely likely. kirit, that is for your reporting and time to check the weather and it's ginger zee. >> good morning, guys. it was an active severe weather day east of the rockies talking more than 70 severe weather records coming in northeastern colorado, montana and this hail, huge, almost 3 inches long. look at that thing thanks to kmgh thanks for finding that photo and montana video. hey was falling there. looks what it look like while you were driving on the roads in montana. looks like almost snow. can be detracting when you're driving so slow it down. rainfall, because there was some
